Mango Salsa Sushi
Posted By Allison On July 30, 2007 @ 12:39 am In Maki Recipes | 13 Comments
A week ago we were visiting Son’s parents, and his mother sent a couple of mangoes back with us. Now I have had mango pudding and mango ice cream before, but I don’t think I have ever had an actual raw mango! Yum! They were some really good mangoes, so we decided to make some sushi with it. Recently I keep hearing about mango salsa, and it sounds really good… so I figure why not make a sushi version? Eating this was like having a party in your mouth! It starts out smooth and sweet because of the mangoes and avocado on the outside, then a contrasting salty crunchy taste of the shrimp and red onion kicks in. Plus the cilantro adds an interesting small and gives a kick to the sushi.
Our regular readers might have noticed a bit of a change in the site. We now have nutrition facts for our sushi! These are by no means exact… they have been calculated based on the individual ingredients so some of the rolls (especially the fried ones) may not be exactly right since I haven’t been able to completely compensate for the cooking methods. Some of the recipes don’t have the nutrition facts calculated yet since I haven’t been able to find the nutrition facts for all the ingredients. One of these days I’m going to have to walk around the grocery store with a camera, taking pictures of all the ingredients that I have used in my sushi! Eventually they will all be up though, so if your favorite sushi doesn’t have the nutrition facts up yet, don’t worry! They will be up soon!
Makes 6 rolls, or 36-48 slices.
